Design Approach/Narrative: This consolidated animal-care campus, which is located adjacent to the existing Lied Animal Shelter, is intended to serve the animal sheltering and adoption needs for the entire region. The recently completed dog adoption park houses adoptable dogs in groups of 10 12 within a community of 22 bungalows. The central goals for the campus include a sophisticated and innovative presentation of the animals, in an attempt to improve the chances for adoption, and a sustainable design solution that strives to reflect the client's vision of environmental responsibility. To meet this objective, the project was developed in accordance with LEED Platinum-level standards for sustainability.
